Something Completely Different... Part X
Mickey Mouse

Press conferences are excellent for finding out how a player felt they did in their match, their form and what they think of their next opponent - but what about all of those completely unrelated questions? Here is the first of many random questions posed to several of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour's brightest stars.

What were your favorite TV shows and movies when you were a kid?

Sabine Lisicki: Tom & Jerry. I really enjoyed that. Also Mickey Mouse. I'd wake up really early in the morning on Saturday and Sunday and watch all the popular cartoons while my parents were still asleep :)

Elena Dementieva: Disney. When I was growing up in Russia, I'd always wait for Sunday night to come, because that's the only night they would show Disney on TV. I'd wait hours in front of the TV just to watch Chip & Dale, Aladdin.

Marion Bartoli: I didn't have much time for TV or movies except on Saturday mornings, when my dad was working and I'd have no school. I remember watching Tom & Jerry and Superman... Apparently I would put a tape in and watch it three or four times in a row. I think I liked Superman because he could fly. Maybe I was dreaming about marrying someone like that!

Patty Schnyder: MacGyver. I liked him - he's a good looking guy and kind of smart. I didn't watch TV much after I turned 14 or 15.

Nadia Petrova: I watched Sabrina the Teenage Witch, 90210... I also travelled with Tom & Jerry DVDs. I loved Shrek, Madagascar... all of those I really loved!

Dominika Cibulkova: I used to watch Slovakian fairytales and cartoons, but I don't think they ever made it into English.

Michaella Krajicek: The Cartoon Network. It helped me a lot in improving my English language, because it didn't have any subtitles with it!

Bethanie Mattek-Sands: I loved Scooby Doo when I was little, and my favorite movie was Lion King. I love the new Pixar movies. I was a big fan of mysteries too, like I read every Nancy Drew book, the Hardy Boys... I liked that genre.

Aleksandra Wozniak: Sailor Moon!! All the female superheroes :)

Katarina Srebotnik: Titanic. I would still watch it now if I could catch it on TV.

Liezel Huber: My favorite movie was Pretty Woman... how dumb, but it was!!

Cara Black: The Karate Kid.

Ana Ivanovic: Peter Pan.

Vania King: I loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and X-Men Evolution on TV.

Vera Zvonareva: Ninja Turtles! Donatello was my favorite. I had all the toys.

Something Completely Different... Part IX: Ever gotten lost?
Something Completely Different... Part VIII: Funniest trick?
Something Completely Different... Part VII: Favorite bad food?
Something Completely Different... Part VI: Is the music in you?
Something Completely Different... Part V: Favorite board game?
Something Completely Different... Part IV: Any pets?
Something Completely Different... Part III: Kim's comeback?
Something Completely Different... Part II: Are you a gamer?
Something Completely Different... Part I: Favorite men's player?
